With a length of 16 km and a width of 4 km, Schiermonnikoog is the smallest inhabited Wadden island. The only village on the island is also called Schiermonnikoog. Due to its varied landscape of dunes, woods, mudflats and polders, as well as diverse flora and fauna, the island has been designated as a National Park. We hired bikes to traverse this island, with me on a mobility scooter - much easier for me to get around.
As soon as the ferry docked, it began to rain and we ended up being completely soaked. The sun came out eventually and helped with drying out. A real day of contrasts.
